One Of New Mexico’s Most Beautiful Attractions Is Hiding Deep Underground

As you drive towards Carlsbad Caverns, the surrounding desert provides no hint of the treasures that lie beneath it. The landscape above ground has a stark appeal that could not be more different from the elaborate rock formations hidden 750-feet below New Mexico’s lone national park. The beauty and scale of the caverns cannot be overstated – you simply need to see them for yourself.

When visiting the caverns, remember to wear good walking shoes and bring layers of clothing – the temperature below ground is 56 degrees Fahrenheit, with high humidity. For more information, visit the official website here.
